Spurs Snatch Late Winner In Wales

An injury time winner by new boy Paulinho was enough to earn Tottenham Hotspurs a dramatic 1-0 away win at Cardiff City.

Cardiff came into this game hoping to outdo their Welsh neighbours Swansea who had earlier claimed an impressive 2-0 away win at Crystal Palace.   

Tottenham Hotspurs dominated from the first whistle having bossed possession and created more chances than their hosts but could not break down a resolute Cardiff City defence in a game that looked likely to end up in a stalemate.

The winner was thanks to Andre Villas Boas new signing, with substitute Lewis Holtby setting up Paulinho for his first goal in English football in the dying minutes of the game.

The result will be a tough one for Cardiff to swallow, especially man of the match shot stopper David Marshall who had kept his side in the game with a string of fine saves and was by far the busier of the two goalkeepers.

Spurs will feel fortunate to have ended the game with 11 men after keeper Hugo Lloris appeared to handle outside the box, as Fraizer Campbell tried to go round him after a sloppy back pass from fullback Kyle Naughton.

The late win means that the London side will jump to second place on the table behind neighbours Arsenal on goal difference as Cardiff now drop to 16th spot.
